The Tale Of The “Lost” Hard Disk
From: Ravi Jayagopal
Co-Founder & Co-Developer, DigitalAccessPass.com
Dear Fellow Entrepreneur,
My name is Ravi Jayagopal.
I’m a Marketer, E-Business Architect, Author, Speaker, Consultant and Web Developer.
I live in San Diego, CA (moved here from New York in August, 2010).
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science & Engineering. And I’ve been coding pretty much all our lives!
In fact, I wrote my first computer “program” when I was in the 8th grade, in a programming language called BASIC – “Beginner’s All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code” (ouch!)
I’ve also written computer programs in FORTRAN, PASCAL, COBOL, dBase, Visual Basic, C, C++, Python, Perl, Ruby, PHP – and even in Microprocessor machine language!
I have developed enterprise web applications that work with database like MySQL, MS SQL, IBM DB2, Sybase, and Oracle.
I have worked on web applications for a wide range of clients: from individuals with a budget of a few hundred dollars, all the way to one of the largest telcos in the world. One of my more recent projects where I was the Technical Architect, had a budget of $1 Billion (yep, Billion with a ‘B’!)
So, when it comes to web architecture, designing and programming, at the expense of sounding immodest and vain, I have to say that I’m damn good at what I do.
(Psst… and I’m arguably the geekiest of the geeks you can find out there 🙂
Now over the years, I have written just about every type of web script you can imagine. And I have sold tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of copies of these scripts.
In the last 15 years, I have switched between various personal computers – from a big a$$ desktop running on the lousy Windows 3.1, right up to my sleek $2200 Dell XPS with 4GB memory – running on (the even lousier) Windows Vista.
I always religiously made backups of all my work. I started with floppy disks, usb keys, burned the files on CD’s, and eventually moved to portable hard disks.
And when I moved from a beaten-up, rented apartment (my wife absolutely hated it!) to our own beautiful, independent house a few years ago (see pic below), during the move, I lost what was one of my most valuable possessions: my portable hard disk that had lterally millions of lines of code written in all kinds of programming languages – PHP, Java, Perl, Shell scripts, SQL scripts, technical design documents, architecture blueprints, technical videos, digital products I had purchased, and all kinds of other ‘stuff’! 😉
My previous home in Westchester, NY (owned)
(moved to San Diego, CA in August 2010)
The main copy was on my PC and the backup was on this disk.
What I did not have, was a backup of the backup – which proved to be a very costly mistake, because of course, unable to resist Moore’s Law, my PC crashed shortly thereafter.
So the main copy was gone. And the backup copy was also gone.
I moaned! And groaned! And whined!
And then moaned some more.
And then I gave up.
And then I forgot about it and moved on, re-writing a handful of those from scratch.
“Eureka! Eureka!”, I Screamed!
Yes, I actually said that. And no, I didn’t run out of the house dripping wet and butt-naked (that would have been quite a spectacle, for sure 🙂
But given the way I was feeling at that moment, I am surprised that I didn’t do something crazy like that!
I’m talking about the day I had finally given in and decided to clean our basement, after months of nagging – oops, I meant, “begging” – by my wife 🙂
And opening box after un-opened box filled with all kinds of junk, and almost at the point of going out and buying a face mask as all that dust was beginning to completely take over my lungs, my heart almost stopped as I saw a familar piece of shiny metal below a pile of old programming books, illuminated by the heavily lit recessed lights in my basement.
Yes, there it was – my beautiful, lovely, long-lost, precious hard disk!
Oh, I almost cried looking at the pretty little thing!
Fast forward to a few days later: I get the feeling that this is probably the sign from above that I have been waiting for – a sign to get off my butt and get my membership site launched – the same membership site for which I have just spent the last 9 months of my life developing a web application that will do everything I’ve always wanted from a membership script!
And now there are simply no more excuses left: I have great content, and an incredible piece of membership software to automate everything,
So, let me get straight to the point.
I want to start sending you these incredible scripts.
Along with that, I’m also going to be including some amazing webmaster goodies: like some advanced Ajax and PHP scripting tricks, including the source code so that you can use it on as many of your web sites as you wish.
And then there’s this entire 2-hour behind-the-scenes video that discusses the sequence of events that happened during the 9 months it took to brainstorm, design, develop, test, and market my newest script, Digital Access Pass . In this video, I also go into great detail about the mistakes we made, and both the bad and brilliant decisions we made in its Product Development, Coding, choice of technology and tools, architecture decisions, marketing strategy boo-boo’s, and what caused it all to finally come together for us.
And I’m going to be churning out content like a man possessed.
And I’m going to let you try this all for just a couple of dollars!
Yup, just $1.97.

Now these aren’t some random scripts or software downloaded from the web.
These are original scripts and tools that I have developed myself – for myself – for my own sites (over a 100 of them, in all sorts of crazy niches :-).
A few of these are scripts that I have actually sold for anywhere between $27 to $197, to e-businesses and web site owners worldwide – 82 countries, to be more specific.
And there are so many other scripts that I have developed, but never got a chance to package them for sale because I have always been distracted with twenty different projects all going on at the same time 🙂
So, for the very first time, I’m releasing many of my own never-sold-before scripts that were available only for my own personal use so far.
Creating Techiiies.com was one of the main reasons I ended up spending 9 months of my life developing a spanking new Membership Site Software from scratch – called DigitalAccessPass.
I haven’t promoted a single product or web site of my own in all of that time. In fact, I saw one of my flagship sites slip from the #2 on Google to #10, because I had not updated the site or done any SE-friendly stuff in all that time.
But now, with DAP having gone live, and living up to my own expectations in various niche sites, it is now time for me to finally put it to really good use 🙂
And quite honestly, I think you would have to be seriously cash-strapped – as in, “I’m practically homeless” cash-strapped – to not get a Techiiies.com membership.
Because you are just about to see what an insanely ridiculous offer this is.
In fact, I’m going to put my money where my mouth is: I am going to let you try Techiiies.com for a mere $1.97 – for 14 days.
And for some crazy reason, if you decide not to continue your Techiiies.com membership after the first 14 days, you can still KEEP all of the content – for FREE!
Yup! Download and keep ALL of the first 14 days worth of content for FREE – even if you end up canceling your subscription before the free trial ends.
And as soon as you sign up, you’ll also get your own affiliate link that you can use to promote this incredible deal to your list and site visitors.
If you decide Techiiies.com is not for you, then no jumping through hoops to cancel your trial subscription. Simply send me an email stating that you want out, and your subscription will be cancelled right away – No questions asked.
